This chapter explains how to install Tricentis Tosca in unattended mode.

An unattended installation is necessary in environments that use software for automated and centralized software distribution. These environments need setups that support unattended installation.


Before you start the installation, ensure that you meet all requirements listed in chapter "Install Tricentis Tosca".

Perform an unattended installation

To perform an unattended installation, follow the steps below:

  1. Unzip the installation package.

  2. Go to the installation folder and enter the following command at the command line:

    "Tricentis Tosca14.0.exe" /s <MSI commands> /qn

    • /s specifies silent mode. Elements that require user interaction are not displayed.

    • /qn specifies that Windows Installer dialogs are not displayed during the installation.

    • Replace <MSI commands> with one or more of the commands in the list below.

MSI commands

The table below contains a list of MSI commands.

You can find more MSIEXEC commands in the Windows Installer Service documentation or display them by running the MSIEXEC.exe file in the command line. Or you can check out the attachments of this Tricentis Knowledge Base article.

For the MSI commands in the list below, please note the following:

  • If a path contains spaces, you have to enclose it with a backslash followed by quotation marks: \"<Path>\". For instance: \"C:\Temp\My directory\file.exe\".

  • All MSI commands except ADDLOCAL are commands to configure the features that you want to install. If you want to use the default configurations for these features, you do not have to specify them in the command line.
